Hello Everyone

Just wanted to let you all know that you need to be aware of fake Orlistat pills being offered for sale as generics to Alli. I bought what I thought were generic Alli 120mg but was sent blue capsules filled with a white powder instead. I know for a fact that the active ingrediant in Alli (Orlistat), is actually small white bead-type drug. So, what is this powder? Only God knows! I've written my letter of complaint to the on-line pharmacy concerned, but no reply. I will see about getting my money back.

Yes. I ordered same med from botanicsasia. I'm positive it is NOT orlistat. I have taken real med before and know the side effects. Tried to get refund with no luck.

I just finished up 90 ct 120mg "Orlistat" purchased thru Botanics Asia, and there is no way this product is anywhere near as effective as Alli. I took 3 Alli (60mg) per day, and the passage of fat thru the stool was obvious. The weight came off very effectively. With this medication, there is no appreciable difference, even though the dosage is twice what Alli offers. I will be seeking a refund.

I absolutely agree with John M and Justamommy, the product is fake and not Orlistat. I actually opened a capsule and tasted it, it is definitely CORN STARCH or a similar product. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT.

I contact Simon at BotanicsAsia and told him what I thought and he told me to return the products and he would give my monies back. The only problem is the product is sold in 45 count at $77.99 each and if I don't have the full amount to send back then I won't get a refund as it has been part used. The other thing is the cost for me to return and track is over $65 - just not worth the hassel to return.

Justamommy Says:

Omg...Lynne, I dealt with Simon as well... Tell him you had severe reaction and brought to pharmacy and they told you was corn starch please!!! Then if bought thru PayPal put dispute out with FAKE PRODUCT. He will deny but then def contact you back thru email. He will then negotiate because doesn't want a problem... With ALL OF US COMPLAINING.. we should STOP THESE ASSES MANIPULATING and using FAKE drugs to those of us who clearly needs them. Pls pls I urge you to fight. He not only complied he sent me $$$ thru PayPal to send back then when I sent him proof of tracking and # to send back I was Fully refunded... U cannot cannot let this company or ANYONE stop you and keep pushing don't back down. Gook luck and pls contact me with ANY MORE QUESTIONS MENTION MY NAME : justamommy in post and I will get email with new post everytime there is one posted ( I have set for any new posts) I check daily and if I see my name in post I will respond and try to help. Good luck... Sending all my best. I have been thru much to much all my life advocating for my sick disabled son for 0ver ten years to then losing him in 2009 to surgery gone wrong. My son died of heart failure @age 10 I never stopped advocating and always always trying to help anyone thru his foundation.. I donot back down.. Even when u think I can't I DO... SO PLS don't let ANYONE STOP YOU .. If anything I try to make a HORRIFIC TRAGEDY IN LOSING MY WHOLE WORLD THE DAY I LOST MY SON NOAH... into something like advocating for any one I can... He never had a voice. I was his voice.. I know he wouldn't want mommy to stop... He would want me to keep on. Justice4Noah... A voice for our children.. The Noah Trudel Foundation. This is, how I go on... I don't just help families and children in need I will try to help ANYONE... especially if I have been thru it myself... I treat ppl the way I would want to be treated. Don't back down. But if they CRAP ON ME... WATCH OUT, LOL!! Good Luck Everyone??

What I found to my surprise is the Botanical company is also a distributor for fully branded Roche Xenical and they have this in stock, but sold via a catalogue not from the webstore. And, Alli will not be back until the final results for Cetilistat, (an improved more modern version of orlistat) tests are released. Seani

Richard Ackerman Says:

JustMommy,

You ARE encouraging people to lie.

Where did you get the notion that this is corn starch ? Why would anyone put a common allergen in capsules? Where is your proof ? Do you have an analysis report from an FDA registered lab ?

You are are presenting opinions as fact and also making defamatory comments.

I searched the company - they sell on eBay and have a 99% positive ratio - thats 99 positives to one negative.

I do not know why you are on an emotional crusade, but I hope for your sake no one from these companies reads these forums as you leave yourself wide open to being successfully sued for defamation.

Justamommy Says:

Well RICHARD... YES, I do have proof is cornstarch. My pharmacy looked at it for me. I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON THAT HAS A PROBLEM WITH THIS COMPANY AND FAKE INGREDIENTS. Have u not checked this forum??? Tons of ppl complaining, seems you are obviously WORKING for this company and checking to see who is complaining to try and shut us up so u can continue to SCAM US OF OUR $$ ... SO SAD!! Well, you can't scare me BUDDY, SORRY, BEEN THRU ENOUGH IN MY LIFETIME AND LOSING A CHILD TO LET A MANIPULATED JERK LIKE U SCARE ME. I am not on a CRUSADE TO GET THIS COMPANY FOR NO REASON, NOR DO I WANT TO HURT THEM. I HAVE PROOF, JUST NEED THEM TO STOP SELLING FAKE ORLISTAT to ppl and taking our hard earned money. Ppl are on here because we used the REAL STUFF and since being tampered with are off shelves and companies like this one as well as others, not just this company, are using this opportunity to make $$ claiming real stuff at a time ppl like us ALL ON HERE, NEED IT MOST. Sorry but if u are not having a problem with this stuff, why THE HELL U ON THIS FORUM?? HMMMM.... MAYBE CUS YOU WORK FOR THESE PPL. Sorry don't scare me BUDDY??

carolyn Says:

I believe what she is saying is it resembles corn starch and absolutely isn't orlistat. A person who has taken the real Alli or Xenical will always know when they have a fake product. Many of the pills being sold as Orlistat especially from overseas have no side effects at all.

Hi,

What a HORRIBLE thing to happen to you & others using these FAKE pills!!! Actually, these manufacturers are supposed to e-mail you with the BOTH active & INACTIVE ingredients as to what are in them. I would also think that SOMEONE would be able to check this pill & see what is in it as well, so you can get these people in trouble which is what should happen!!! I called Activis & had them e-mail me the ROTTEN Oxycodone by them (10/325) because as we all know does NOT work like the old Watson formula, & they did. They gave me BOTH the active & inactive ing., but NO ONE WILL TELL ME IF THE INGREDIENTS ARE FROM CHINA OR WHEREVER!!! I think it is also HORRIBLE & should be againt the law to at least know where something that we put into our bodies EVERY DAY is FROM! I WISH there were ingredients (I MEAN INACTIVE AS WELL BECAUSE THEY ARE WHAT IS MAKING PEOPLE SICK & SOMETIMES DYING!!!) I also had ENDO people do the same which is what I will be trying NEXT 10/300. My PHARMACIST suggested that I go to an ALLERGIST to see what INACTIVE ingredients I am allergic to as some make me miserably tired, headaches & nausea, ECT ECT ECT., & every mft used different ones. I will bring my e-mails to my Allergist & tell him which drugs made me feel differently, & maybe he can figure it out. I do not know what else to do~I am in SO damn much pain with all of these & miserable side affects...I even ended up in ER twice! I had NO side affects with the Watson Oxycodone 10/325 at all & it took the pain away! I hope all who reads this get ahold of the manufacturer & insist (they HAVE TO TELL YOU) on getting a list of both the active & inactive & then go to their allergist so we can find out which works for us best. We have a RIGHT to know what is put in our bodies daily!!!! I hope this will helpIt is just a suggestion.

Desperate IN PAIN!

Hello justamommy!

There is NO doubt in my mind we should ALL write letters & get these people prosecuted~Enormous FINES & LONG PRISON TIME is what they need~perhaps the Attorney General as well?! To do this~take peoples' $$$ & KEEP THEM IN PAIN is Horrific & they NEED to be punished!

To Richard Ackerman,

You are truly a heartless~non-compassionate person who either WORKS for this company that should be shut down, or knows someone in the company! Where do you get off accusing people they are lying when they obviously have the TRUTH from a PHARMACIST! GET A LIFE~Bet you are NEVER in pain & if you ever ARE~we will be seeing YOU on this site in another lite. May God help you.
